Dympna is married with two children. She helps her husband managing their own farm for a living. She has been harvesting and selling bananas for five years and she earns well to support their needs.
To improve the farm, she borrowed a loan from GDMPC micro credit to buy fertilizer and pay replanting costs. She had to be determined in her work as she wants to give a better education to her children. She hopes that someday, her children will be successful in their career.
Gata Daku Multi-Purpose Cooperative (GDMPC) was founded in 1992 by 32 farmer-members to empower people by providing livelihood opportunities and other support services. Today, it has over 15,000 members located in upland, lowland and coastal regions of the Philippines, and offers credit, savings, education, and various social services.
